Positive Stories Festival

For the first time ever, as part of Season 3, Wonder Fools have created the Positive Stories Festivals for young people to perform their chosen plays across four regional hubs in Scotland this Summer. We are delighted to welcome these groups to the Traverse Theatre, The Gaiety, Eden Court and Perth Theatre.

We took the time to speak with the young participants of the festival as well as the group leaders of each selected group, this season’s playwrights and our project partners on the importance of youth festivals for young people and what their experience was like from being selected right through to performing on stage at one of our four regional hubs.
